We simplify beauty and skin care.
What do we do
We create all-natural beauty and personal care products with high quality ingredients in their most raw or least processed state with a clear philosophy around protecting our bodies and our planet; in particular our most vital resource – water.
I am Rozanne, the founder of Eve + Luxe. At Eve and Luxe, our mission is to simplify life and beauty care and motivate others to make a difference to our planet through everyday habits.
Eve + Luxe was born out of a necessity to satisfy a personal need.
Growing up, my skin has always been prone to breakouts. Having tried so many things but not seeing results, I took a leap of faith and decided to try something that I had seen people do, while holidaying back home in Sri Lanka; use coconut oil on my face.
But when it came to finding a product that I loved, with the right amount of lightness, absorbency, mild aroma and beautiful, easy to use packaging, I was not happy with the choices available on the shelf, such as cooking grade oil. It left my skin feeling quite greasy, gave off a strong odour and the jars itself were not the most user-friendly in the bathroom.
I wanted a more personal experience when it came to what I was putting on my skin. And I didn’t want to compromise on effectiveness and luxury.
When I couldn’t find exactly what I was looking for, I embarked on a mission to source it myself. Thus, Eve + Luxe was born; with the ultimate grade of raw, organic coconut oil specifically made for beauty use – differentiated by its extraction process.
While on this journey, I learnt of the lack of transparency in conventional personal care products as well as the effect the beauty industry has on our planet and natural resources.
I wanted to build a business that addressed these issues; a brand which simplified life and personal care routine by being transparent about exactly what goes in the products. And a business that motivated others to make a difference by living more mindfully and being conscious about the impact of daily habits on our planet and the world’s water resources.
Why are we passionate about water?
The World-Wide Fund (WWF) states that by 2025, 2/3 of the world’s population could be at risk of water shortages.
We are lucky to have clean drinking water coming out of our taps here in Australia. But did you know that globally, 785 million people do not have access to a basic drinking-water service.
And according to a study done by the World-Wide Economic Forum in 2016, every year, 8 million metric tons of plastic enters the ocean!
We believe this is reason enough to act now. To protect and save our water resources. And we like to act with people who are passionate about making a difference.
